    5121 has the yellow Chez 106 wrap according to @Waiting for 30 Minutes.
  2. Hello, I recently came across an OC Transpo spreadsheet. According to this spreadsheet, the 97xx Orion V buses have a 250HP Detroit Diesel S50 DDEC III engine, whereas the 98xx Orion V buses have a 250HP S50 DDEC IV engine instead. The VIs also have the same DDEC IV engine as the 98xx Vs except for being 275HP instead. Can someone please add this? Thanks.

    5128 seems to be frequently on the 80 Tunney's Pasture in the morning as I rode it twice recently. I saw it at 08:04. 5115 was on the 80 Barrhaven Centre route at 15:17. 6613 was on 85 Bayshore at the same time, but this bus was much fuller compared to 6640 having only three people. Was 15:10.

    6640 was on the 85 Bayshore at Carling and Holland today. Bus was empty with only three people including myself. I actually loved having the bus to myself. (15:06 time)

  10. Have a look at this! This photo shows a 1989 D40 doing the 85 Bayshore route back in 2002. The bus looks to be 9040. This photo was on Stephen Ree's blog. Link here: https://www.google.ca/amp/s/stephenrees.blog/2008/01/31/buses-or-trains/amp/?source=images

    Thanks for reminding me. I had forgotten that they retired. @MCIBUS, scratch what I said above.
